OS X - Repair disk errors like invalid node structure If you're an OS X user you may have run into a problem like this before. When you power on the machine it just sits on the Apple logo screen but won't get any further. Other boot up problems may be fixed by this as well.

One solution to this is to reformat the hard drive, reinstall the OS, and then reinstall all the programs.

(This because I reported that a couple of times I had to do a hard reset.)
